Nice patch. It caused me no problems, so I committed it. Thanks.

It could just be that, in running Parabola, I have too new a version of Texinfo (5.1). When, however, I tryed make in doc/, I received the following errors.
Fixing that, I found that makeinfo didn't like the braces on the @title lines for imail, ref-manaul, and user-manual. In the attached patch I remove those.

(I hope the attached patch suffices---I generated it with git diff. Is there a better way to contribute or collaborate? Perhaps a public branch on github?)

Patch Summary

  • doc/ffi/ffi.texinfo

The myresult macro produced errors. Inverting conditionals and definitions works.

  • doc/imail/imail.texinfo
  • doc/ref-manual/scheme.texinfo
  • doc/user-manual/user.texinfo

The @title line contained braces. Removed.
